The Madrigal family is back with the holiday-themed Encanto at The Hollywood Bowl, airing on Disney+ on Dec. 28.
The all-new special will have the Hollywood Bowl transformed into the magical Casita from the 2021 award-winning animated film for a spectacular concert event. The original cast will be in attendance, including Stephanie Beatriz (Mirabel), Adassa (Dolores), Carolina Gaitán (Pepa), Jessica Darrow (Luisa), Diane Guerrero (Isabela), Mauro Castillo (Félix), Angie Cepeda (Julieta), Olga Merediz (Abuela Alma) and special guests, including legendary Colombian superstars and multiple Latin Grammy winners Carlos Vives and Andrés Cepeda.
The live-to-film concert experience, featuring an 80-person orchestra, 50 dancers and out-of-this-world special effects, gives viewers a front-row seat to the unprecedented musical extravaganza celebrating the world, characters and songs of Encanto.
“We are so excited for this incredibly prolific concert event that is bringing together award-winning talent and some of the best storytellers in the world. With our partners at Walt Disney Animation Studios, Disney Concerts, Fulwell 73 Productions, AMP Worldwide and Live Nation-Hewitt Silva, the music of Encanto will come to life in a must-see way that rivals the likes of the biggest award-show performances, and we’re so thrilled audiences across the world can experience the spectacle from wherever they are on Disney+,” Ayo Davis, president of Disney branded television, said in a statement.
Encanto tells the story of the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia in a magical house. Encanto made $256 million at the global box office and nabbed three Oscar nominations, wining Best Animated Feature.
The show will be filmed across two performances at the Hollywood Bowl, Nov. 11 and Nov. 12.
